Last week, I provided an example that included winter specific self care for people who may be having a hard time meeting their needs for physical activity due to the season. But for people who have their exercise/physical activity routines in place, there is likely still a need for additional self care ideas related to down time.
In the summertime, we may relax by soaking up the sun on the beach, picnicking in the park, or grilling out in the backyard. These types of self care are not available to most of us in the wintertime, and there are additional cold weather specific needs that come up. Take a look at the products below for ideas about how to relax and take care of yourself during this chilly season.
